My son has been difficult since birth. He cried constantly. He had issues with noise. He rarely slept. He's very verbal. Aside from that he's been diagnosed "on the spectrum" for his behavioral issues. Part of me thinks everyone could be classified "on the spectrum" for one reason or another. But I digress. He is pushing me to the brink of insanity. I've tried everything. I've read books. I've looked into clinical trials. I've had him in behavioral therapy. I can't take it anymore. I have 2 other children (2 1/2 and 7 months). Unfortunately my son is an attention hoar. So the other 2 have to take a backseat alot. It bothers me. The fact that my 2 1/2 yo can see he's unreasonable actually comforts me. At least I know I'm not crazy. So what does he do? Well... He kicks, bites, screams, he refuses to do things, he spits, he's mischievous, tries to get his siblings in trouble, he's a hall monitor, he's demanding, particular, compulsive, non compliant, he hits, he sits it out, he bangs his head, he doesn't play appropriately, he is obsessed with tape, he changes his mind and melts down, he's a control freak, he steals attention from anyone who gets it but him, he locks us out of the house, he's destructive. Just to name a few. I can't take it anymore. The other two do not act this way. Ok. The 7 month old obviously can't, but he is by far a better baby (same as the 2 1/2 yo). HEEEELLLLLPPPP!
